Jumping for Joy: Life is Good



The Free Spirited Hat Ladies stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle has so many fun images on it.  I've used the small version of the lady jumping for joy (at least that's my impression of her) and stamped her three times.  Each one is colored a bit differently with Copic markers and I added Frosted Carmine velvet glitter to one of them.  Then I fussy cut each one out to have them perched on various letters from my Life Is Good solo sentiment die from Die-Versions.
I created the background using the Polished Stone technique.   Glossy cardstock, a blending tool, and alcohol inks are the main ingredients for this technique.  Then I used the negative portion of the die cut (saving all the little inside pieces) and adhered to my yellow cardstock.  The positive portion of the die cut will be saved for another day.  Next, I adhered my jumping for joy ladies and as a finishing touch, added Sapphire and Silk Sparkle N Soft flock all around the border of the card.
